Adopt-A-Comic: Alf Kills Hitler


Posted by on

Hey everyone. Adopt-A-Comic Chris Gethard here. My quest to land a role in the Alf movie continues. So far, I’ve made zero progress. I think this has to do mostly with the fact that you can’t just ask to be in a movie and get in a movie. That’s the exact opposite of how the entertainment industry works. But I’m a dreamer and I like to go big and I’m hoping if I put enough positive energy out there into the world it will loop around and I’ll get to share the big screen with the pride of Melmac, Gordon Shumway himself.

Another big road block to me getting in the Alf movie is that a script for the Alf movie doesn’t yet exist. It’s hard to cast a movie when a script for that movie is not a thing. I decided that I would do my part to try and jump start the brainstorming process so that maybe the fine folks at Sony Animation would feel like there was some momentum and they could get to work on sending this Alf project into production.

I come from an improv background, so I’m often at my best brainstorming along with other people. I called in one of the biggest guns I know to help me out on this one. I came up with Bobby Moynihan at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York City. You know him now from “Saturday Night Live,” but I know him from our days doing very dumb improv shows in New York City, driving all over the United States doing college gigs, and writing 1,000 bits together. That’s not a joke, he and I wrote and performed a show called 1,000 Bits. I can’t even explain what it was, but I can tell you that bit #3 was “Gay Squirrel”.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this video. And I hope you enjoy my appearance in the upcoming Alf movie even more. I believe in this dream and I believe that with your help this will one day happen.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
